65 Hermann Street

residence 3

The Architect’s Home. A centrally located backdrop for life — and Instagram

An architect’s former home, residence 3 at 65 Hermann Street shows how to create an urban escape. Number 3’s owner did it right because you’ll feel eminently comfortable and relaxed as soon as you walk in. There’s a calm, warm and bright vibe waiting for you.

The 1-bed, 1-bath condominium features a deeded 75-sqft patio where you can tend to your plants or relax in the sun. There are wide-plank oak floors underfoot, a just-updated dual galley kitchen with new counters, stainless steel appliances and updated modern lighting throughout. The large living room can accommodate working from home easily, its large wall space and gallery lighting where you can display your favorite pieces of art (or hang a giant tv). The subway-tiled bathroom is generous as is the bedroom and its large closet. This home has quality, location and convenience.

While you have a deeded parking space, you may not need it given that you’re at the intersection of Duboce, Hayes Valley and the Lower Haight, three of the most vibrant and interconnected neighborhoods in the City with transit, biking and driving options at your leisure.

Terms & Conditions

Real estate is always changing and evolving. It's complex and can be as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone's control.

In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change with big implications. Other things like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors can and will impact market values and performance. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time. It's important to note that while you can’t take the attorney out of him he will not be acting as your attorney here. This speaks to the larger point that you should also seek out qualified folks who work in their respective sectors if you have further questions.

875 Vermont Street, No. 204

Relaxed. Practical. Upgraded. Surprising. Comfortable Nest. 

Number 204 is a rarely available, courtyard-side, 1-bed condominium with in-unit laundry, parking and outdoor access that's just been thoughtfully updated. The details are what makes this space enjoyable and comfortable. Unlike many of the units here, 204 has two large sweeping patio doors overlooking the rear courtyard allowing a light and airy feel all day. The space lives large and has a quality feel. 204's updates include new dimmable LED lighting everywhere; new hardware and trim; and, a gorgeous walnut feature wall with metal inlay detail + plenty of power for your large TV, DVR, gaming system(s) + soundbar. There's an inviting, bright, catalog-worthy kitchen and dining area for noshing or work. There's a bright bedroom with large closet, big west-facing window, and new architectural recessed lighting. Steps away from a dog park, playground + urban trail at McKinley Square, 875 is rated as ”very walkable.” Also near the vibrant Mission District, Potrero's main areas and 101.

This part of Vermont Street also happens to be the curviest street in the city (sorry Lombard Street).

368 Elm Street, Unit No. 305

If you have to work from home, then Number 305 at 368 Elm Street is for you. You have a great location — Hayes Valley, Japantown, and a lot of green space are minutes away — and the just-updated unit has a great kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms, in-unit laundry and a big wall of windows that floods the space with sunlight.

305 is in a low-dues building with an elevator, intercom entry and fast Webpass fiber internet from Google. 305 also comes with 2, extra-deep, side-by-side parking spaces. Commuting is made easier because you have a protected turn onto Gough Street and tech shuttle stops are very close too.

305’s floor plan is ideal and feels big. The two bedrooms are separated from each other and the master bedroom has a separate entrance, an oversized closet that’s bigger than most in the City, and a large en suite bathroom with twin floating vanities.

Getting outside is easy too with a roof patio and bbq grill in the building or you can walk 2 minutes to the large 5.6-acre park at the end of the block. You could even take up a new sport at one of the newly refurbished sports fields also at the end of the block.

The area is changing and evolving with Hayes Valley growing closer, new luxury buildings coming online and Van Ness Avenue getting a complete makeover. Take the opportunity to make 305 yours now and you’ll be well positioned for the brighter days that lie ahead.

SOLD: 1608 Fulton Street, San Francisco
Top-Floor NOPA Condominium

1608 Fulton is perched atop a handsome NoPa building that had a exterior facelift in 2018. 1608 is a sunny and serene 3-bed, 1 split-bath condominium that mixes its 1904 architectural details with modern conveniences like a laundry room, large kitchen with pantry, dual-pane windows and garage parking with storage. Ready for its next chapter, 1608 has been a warm and happy home with 9-foot tall ceilings, wood floors and newly updated lighting. There’s morning light and afternoon light as the living room faces south towards the Panhandle. Part of a relatively informal 3-unit HOA, 1608 comes with the best parking space in the building along with deeded storage area on the ground floor, but you can easily leave the car at home as 1608 has a 99 Bike score, 95 Walk score and a 78 Transit score with close proximity to the thriving Divisadero Corridor, USF and the Panhandle.
